Tomorrow's Nurses & Doctors

Twenty-four members of the Scrubs Club visited Loyola University's Stritch School of Medicine on Monday, February 15th.  First on the agenda was a short presentation by staff and a medical student on what medical school is like, the variety of pathways one can take to achieve the dream, and the passion needed to be a good physician.  This was followed by time in the cadaver lab with a second year medical student who pointed out both normal and abnormal tissue.  From there the group went to the simulation lab where they had hands on experience in CPR and other life saving skills.  Club members (some of whom are certified in CPR) where able to see the positive effects of their skills by feeling the returning pulses on the mannequin, seeing the blood pressure waves return on the monitor, and the effective oxygen levels made visible on the monitor.  

Remember the Res girls of 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 classes.  One day we may be lucky enough to have one of them as the nurse or physician caring for us.
